If a tree falls in the woods and no one's around, does it make a sound? And if an Apple Car is parked before it ever drives, was it even a car? Project Titan could be shifting gears, but in a world where artificial intelligence and augmented reality grow more and more important, maybe the car isn't the most interesting problem Apple can solve.
Oh, just a note: We recorded this on Tuesday, October 18, one day before Apple invited journalists to its October 27 "Hello Again" event (presumably to announce new Macs). So that's why we muse about how late the invitations are—they were!—but now the event is confirmed, and we'll unpack all the announcements for you next week, probably Friday but maybe late Thursday if we can get it done quickly. Talk to you then!
